Karlien's mother and manager, Ronel Brink told Sunday newspaper, Rapport that her daughter wants to take legal steps against Hougaard. This comes after Brink gathered testimonials from people that saw Hougaard intoxicated at the event.

She went on to say that van Jaarsveld doesn’t want to keep the children away from Derick, but that she wants to ensure that her children are safe when they are with Hougaard. 

Hougaard joined Martin Bester on Thursday to explain what exactly happened the night the drama unfolded: “We were the safest that we could be. We were sitting with friends and later the kids got cold. One of our friends owns the Summit Bar. So we went to go sit there because they were getting cold. We covered them up, and they were sleeping.”
